“It refers to the boldness of a lion and is especially a nickname used to describe a warrior. I see myself as a warrior and other individuals too. Never let yourself get too dependent on others, so you can make your own choices and live YOUR life how you want it. To have a ‘heart of a lion’ basically means the refusal to give up and to show exceptional courage or bravery. Bravery doesnt always mean the lack of fear, but that you move forward even in the hardest times.. others see it as an ordinary saying, but for me; a great significance and something i want to hold on to for the rest of my life.”
Sofie (the Netherlands)
